One more "must" in Granada. The architecture in Generalife is breathtaking though a bit less impressive than this in Palacios Nazaries. I would suggest to start the visit from Generalife and going to Alhambra after that.

Attached to the AlHambra, the gardens have both formal areas and water features Quite large but walkable in about half an hour. Go before or after the palace, depending upon your arrival and assigned time slot.

There are good views of the Alhambra and Granada below as you walk to the summer palace of the former amirs through gardens, ponds and running water.

Walking the grounds and viewing the architecture makes you feel transported back in time. This is part of the Alhambra tour package, at least in mine it was. You walk and explore until it is your time to enter the Alhambra. Very pleasant and picturesque.

We took in this site as part of our Alhambra palace tour and well worth while. Our tour guide made it come to life and although so close to the Alhambra Palace it has a different feel to it.
